Over 700,000 without power in Texas, other states from storms

Over 713,000 homes and businesses in Texas, Kentucky and other states were without power on Tuesday (May 28), with storms battering the region since the long Memorial Day holiday weekend, according to meteorologists and data from PowerOutage.us.

Tornado-spawning thunderstorms that swept the Southern Plains and the Ozark Mountains killed at least 21 people across four U.S. states over the long Memorial Day weekend.

In Dallas, the storm ripped the roof off Rainbow Hardware, a warehouse in one of the city’s commercial districts. In other parts of the city trees were uprooted, low lying parks filled with rushing water, and signage toppled.

Additional storms were sweeping through the northern part of the state on Tuesday evening.
